Resumen


Lithophaga nigra (d’Orbigny, 1853) is an uncommon boring bivalve that inhabits dead coral skeletons and occurs in the Caribbean Sea and the Indopacific region. One specimen of this species was collected within a dead head of the coral Montastraea sp. in Playa Blanca, (bahía de Gaira) near Santa Marta at 10 m of depth, and it is recorded for the first time in the Colombian Caribbean.
